ATS Matchup Insight | CappersPicks Insider Preview

It was of course LeBron James who stole the show in Game 1 of this series, racking up 27 points and nine rebounds, knocking down half of his shots from the field, and half of his shots from beyond the arc.

That shouldn’t come as a surprise after he dominated the Bobcats during the regular season to the tune of a 37.8 points per game average during the regular year.

Dwyane Wade also showed no ill effects of the injuries that plagued him during the year, scoring 23 points and adding five assists while knocking down 10 of his 16 shots from the field. As long as he continues to perform, the Heat remain the clear cut favorite to win it all.

The team also got a real lift from James Jones, who scored 12 points off the bench and really keyed some scoring runs by the Heat. He scored four points on a 12-2 run in the second quarter, then hit a big three-pointer early in the fourth quarter to kick start an 18-4 run that sealed the game.

As for the Bobcats, they’ll need some better performances from their stars if they are going to compete in this series.

Kemba Walker knocked down 6-of-15 shots from the field for 20 points, adding six assists, five rebounds, and two steals, while Al Jefferson chipped in 18 points and 10 rebounds, filling out his stat line with a pair of blocks, an assist, and a steal.

Jefferson’s status for Game 2 was never in doubt, despite his suffering a strained plantar fascia in the first quarter, and receiving a pair of injections to continue the game. He was also seen leaving the arena in a walking boot following Game 1.

The Heat simply have the Bobcats’ number, and they’ll be looking to put an exclamation mark on this series before taking to the road. The Big three have dominated the Bobcats to a tune of a 16-0 record since their arrival in South Beach, and Wednesday’s meeting should be no different with so much on the line.

With that being said, expect Charlotte to get their points. The teams have played over the total in each of their last four meetings.

The Bobcats also respond to losses with points, playing over the total in 19 of their last 26 games following a loss.

The Bobcats are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings between these teams, and the Heat are 5-1 ATS in their last six conference quarterfinal games.

The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these teams, and 10-2 in the Heat’s last 12 games against divisional opponents.

The play: Miami -10.5, Over 186
